What are the Scan to network folder ports?

Hi,

I have a HP scanner and use to scan to network folder (My file server). What are the usual ports for that?

i'm assuming you don't use NFS or you probably won't be asking but nfsv4 uses a single configurable port and v3 needs ranges
also note that some scanners scan to ftp folders

assuming windows shares :
445 if you are lucky and the scanner uses CIFS ( recent windows shares )
135 137 138 139 and your whole rpc range if it uses SMB
even for cifs opening 137-139 could help with name resolution and network discovery ( automatic detection of shares )

you may need extra ports if the scanner does detection through wins or the likes.
you most likely need DNS and the dns server to be the domain controller so SRV records are populated and the scanner can detect the fileserver.

note that it is very likely that your scanner scans the network using several methods so you just need to open as much as needed.
i'd start with dns on the dc and port 445 open to the fileserver and see how that works out.

Most scanners are using SMB or port 9100 like printers do but you need to check with your manufacturer manual.

Port 9100 is for sending printouts to printer.

If HP Scanner uses SMB for Scan to Network Folder, you should open incoming port TCP 445 in the firewall of the computer hosting the network folder.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

both previous experts are right on, i'd say that if you're scanning from the same LAN it would not worry about network ports but rather making sure the folder permissions for the account to be used.

How do you will receive the scanned output? Saving in the localdrive or sending it to the email address.
1. You would need TCP 445 port and smb port should be opened, incase if you are saving it in the network/local path
2. If this output is sending via email then you need to open smtp port as well.
